Tropical storm weakening

Tropical Storm Fiona continued its slow path towards Bermuda yesterday, but forcasts suggest the system will weaken in the coming days.

The storm, which was still around 1,400 nautical miles east-southeast of the island, was expected to fall below tropical storm strength this weekend, becoming a tropical depression.

And while the system continues to travel towards the island, moving west-northwest at around 9 knots, sustained winds are expected to fall to 30 knots by Sunday.

The Bermuda Weather Service has said the storm was not considered a threat to the island.
